Victorian Science Fiction Steam Tank
Here is a step by step guide to how the Victorian Science Fiction Steam Tank was painted.
The military might in the Victorian era was enhanced with powerful steam tanks. This is a resin kit from Ironclad Miniatures.
I recently wrote an article on adding Science Fiction elements to Old West gaming, SteamPunk Old West. I wanted some vehicles to go with the Old West miniatures I was painting. Looking at the resin models from Ironclad Miniatures, one that did catch my eye was one of the steam tanks. It comes in a variety of pieces.
This is a very clean casting. There are not many parts and this dry run shows it was very easy to put together. I am thinking about adding more details to the model.
The first task was to wash the resin, to remove any remaining mould lubricant. The model comes with just a few metal parts and these were attached with superglue. The turret has a metal hatch and a metal gun barrel.
I am going to paint the tracks seperately, so they are not affixed in this photograph.
The boiler and the funnel were attached to the hull of the tank.
